4 Year well check

Age:4 years
Hight: 40 1/14 " (55%)
Weight: 37 pounds
Next set of shots.... 7long years from now!
Mr T arrived just in time to hold Miss C's hands during her shots. She received 6 vaccines in 3 shots in her thighs. She was not happy but she did not cry one tear! So brave! I can't say the same for myself. Mr T said he looked back and I had my face in my hands trying not to watch!

A letter to my belly

Dear Babies in My Belly,
I’ve been meaning to sit down and write this letter to you for a while now…
so that I feel less guilty about my lack of preparation for you.
Less guilty about the roller coster of emotions iv had about there being two of you.
so that I stop worrying that we still haven’t found the perfect name combinations for each of you.
so that you become more real to me.
and so that you know just how much you already matter to our family.
In the 6 months that you have been growing in my belly, life has been a bit crazy for your Mommy, Daddy & Sister.
So crazy, that we haven’t spent hours preparing a nursery, or shopping at Babies R Us, or folding and refolding all your precious mini clothes.
I feel terrible about this. As if the time I spend preparing for your arrival somehow equates to the amount of love I have for you.
It doesn’t. I promise.
I already love you to the moon and back.
Baby Girl your ferocious little kicks to my ribs already melt my heart.
Baby Boy your tap dancing on my bladder makes me smile.
I already know that you two know each other better than I ever will.
I have faith that when you get here, you will give our little family the reality check these 3 only children need…
Help to teach your sister that he is not, in fact, the center of the Universe.
Remind your Mommy and Daddy that they are a team
Soften our hearts.
Renew our Spirits and humble us.
Fill our lives with an added measure of love.
I look forward to our quiet moments alone.
I look forward to your mini fingers and toes.
I look forward to your blinking eyes.
I look forward to all the ways you bond as only twins can
But I especially look forward to learning about all the things that make each of you, you uniquely YOU.
I already forget everything about raising a newborn,
and I looking forward to relearning everything with you- x2!.

I love you infinity x2
PS from this point forward I'll document your growing lives better! I promise

Happy Mothers day!

Today is not just about thanking all the mothers in our lives and telling  them how much we love them, but don't forget to do that! It's day day for me to remember how special my job is and how very lucky I am for my little munchkin and the two little babies in my belly! I love you al! 
Happy Mother's Day to you all! 

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.~Sophia Loren

"Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs... since the payment is pure love."

A chocolate covered pickle!
I got a lot of stares and could have cared less. This treasure is located in a candy store in down town Fredricksburg Texas.

My little buckaroo turned 4!

Miss C wanted a pony party AGAIN this year. Click here to see last year's pony party at my mom's house. This year I really needed to keep it simple but I still wanted to give her the pony party she wanted. I found a place less then a mile from our new house called The little Buckaroo Ranch. We invited a few friends and family to come enjoy the animals with us.
I'll give the buckaroo ranch a little review here: Overall great experience. Cowgirl Mariam, owner and party leader, well let's just say she never breaks character! She might be a little overly stern when it comes to her rules. For example when Uncle Joe (an adult here people) petted a pony out of turn she busted into song & dance to correct him in front of the group. It was really funny but I'm not sure Uncle Joe and Cowgirl Mariam thought so.  My family thought I was a little crazy for paying perfectly good money to be let around a "farm"
